Dr. Minkowitz is an outstanding doctor and such a compassionate person. We took our 9-year-old son to her because he was complaining of leg pain. She diagnosed the problem quickly and accurately and, because we were eager to take care of it immediately, got him in for surgery 5 days later. The surgery was a total success, and our son was back on the soccer field 2 weeks later. We are so grateful to Dr. Minkowitz and her wonderful staff! I couldn't recommend her more highly.
